Original story below:
Last month 11-year-old Celtic fan Jay Beatty got the opportunity to walk on to the pitch and take a penalty at half-time during his side’s 2–0 win over Hamilton.
Beatty, who has Down syndrome, scored, and his goal has now been entered into the SPFL's goal of the month competition.
The young fan from Northern Ireland first came to the attention of players and fans after Greek striker Georgios Samaras picked him out of the crowd during Celtic’s title-winning celebrations at the end of last season.
Unfortunately the tournament clashed with a family holiday and Jay was unable to travel to the World Cup.
Here's Jay receiving an incredible reception from fans during half-time between Celtic and Hamilton.
His father, Martin, recently uploaded this clip of Jay giving a team talk to the Celtic players playing on TV:
And here he is giving the real thing in the dressing room before the Hamilton game.
It looks like Jay's got a chance...
